I booked in with XtremeMTB to try and improve my mediocre downhill skills. Not only did I improve, but I also had a great fun day. The one to one coaching was great and Sam was friendly and understanding. I would recommend this to anyone!

I booked with 3 of my friends for a day with XtremeMTB. We cycle a lot and were looking for some new and more challenging trails to try out. I was surprised and delighted at the trails that Sam knew and his knowledge of mountain biking and skills is second to none.
